Koei Tecmo has released new information regarding magical abilities that will be available in Fairy Tail: Unison Raid, Extreme Magic Spells and an Awakening Gauge. Details as well as new screenshots are below.
Characters can now combine in a Unison Raid to unleash their magic spells at once to overpower enemies. This Unison Raid ability originally premiered in the FAIRY TAIL anime and manga, but in the game, all new magic and character team-ups will be featured, introducing exciting new powers from never before seen character combinations.
Extreme Magic Spells
A series of Extreme Magic Spells will be introduced, including Kanna’s Fairy Glitter – which can be activated when magic attacks are combined, Makarov’s “Giant” magic, and even a spell known as Exceed Special, which will help your party out in times of terrible trouble. Each magic spell carries unique elemental properties and affinities, with magic dealing more damage to specific opponents. Characters can then upgrade their magic spells by gaining experience points throughout their journey.
By using magic attacks during battle, the party’s Awakening Gauge increases. When the gauge is fully filled, characters can be Awakened, enabling them to utilize even more powerful magical abilities – and with each character employing different Awakening Modes, players will be able to expand their strategies across a broad range of sorceries and enemies.
Fairy Tail is set to release on July 30 in Europe and July 31 in North America for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. If you missed it, a new trailer was released showing off the cast, quests and more as well as a 25 minute gameplay video
